How to Layer Saya the Right Way | Morning Routine
Your skincare routine should be your daily dose of self-care, an experience of luxury in the morning and a wind-down retreat of a night. Our Saya products are intended to be your spa day at home, for busy mamas and minds alike, who deserve special treatment in their days. But you may find yourself thinking, ‘What products do I use first’ and ‘Which step is the Glow Serum again?’. Don’t worry, we hear you and we’ve listened. That's why we’re happy to introduce our official guide - How to layer Saya the right way: Morning Routine.
Step one: Always start with a cleanser
Use our Cleansing Balm or Gel in the morning as it is important to remove any accumulated oils, sweat, and impurities from the skin overnight. It also helps prepare the skin for the application of skincare products, ensures a clean canvas for makeup, and promotes a fresh and healthy complexion throughout the day. For The Cleansing Balm, we suggest applying it to dry skin for optimal performance. Gradually add water to emulsify for at least 30 seconds and rinse. This application method enhances the effectiveness of the product. For the Cleansing Gel, we recommend applying to wet skin. Squeeze a small amount and emulsify in your hands with a touch of water and lather on the skin for at least 60 seconds before rinsing with water.
Step two: Use the Rose Hydrating Mist
Incorporate the Rose Hydrating Mist into your morning skincare ritual, offering 72 hours of hydration and prepping the skin for a long day ahead. Begin your routine by gently misting your face with this soothing mist, formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, Cucumber, and Rose water. The mist not only provides instant refreshment but also serves as a crucial step in enhancing the efficacy of your skincare routine. Damp skin is more receptive to absorbing active ingredients than dry skin, creating an optimal canvas for the next steps in your routine, such as serums.
*Saya’s Tip: Spritz the mist as much as you like throughout the day for an instant refresh, especially helpful during the Summer as we all know how hot a Noosa Summer can be.
Step three: Apply Vitamin C
Incorporating Saya's Glow Serum with stabilised Vitamin C as the third step in a skincare routine is essential. The serum is a potent antioxidant that brightens the complexion and deeply hydrates the skin. With a blend of native Australian botanicals rich in antioxidants, minerals, and organic acids, including Vitamin C and AHA’s. The serum works synergistically to protect against free radical damage, replenish the skin, and provide long-lasting hydration. This step is crucial for achieving a healthy, luminous glow and future-proofing the skin against environmental stressors.
*Saya’s Tip: For the best results with your Serum collection, start with the Glow Serum, as its lower pH benefits from being applied first. Once it's dry and the Vitamin C has settled, introduce your niacinamide (Super Serum). As the Renew Serum is a facial oil, reserve it for the final step in your routine as it will lock in moisture. Alternatively, mix it with your daily moisturiser or apply it last, following your moisturiser. This layering sequence ensures each serum works effectively on the skin.
Step four: Moisturise the skin
Before applying any sunscreen for the day, make sure to moisturise your skin as part of our last step in your morning routine. Our moisturisers contain Hyaluronic Acid and are designed with the intention of hydrating, soothing and balancing the skins complexion without breaking your skins precious barriers. We recommend the Balance Moisturiser for normal to combination skin or our Intense Moisturiser for dry skin. Optionally, enhance moisture protection for sensitive eye areas by incorporating our Eye Cream.
And that's how you layer skincare right way: morning edition! For an added boost of hydration, add a few drops of our Super Serum into your moisturiser, or treat yourself to our indulgent Body Products when time allows.
